Quick help ? (CPU Mining)


#1

Greetings all !

I'm preparing USB keys with Ubuntu and zcash for CPU mining ...

I would like to offer an ISO, bootable for those who want to give it a try.

I'm also doing it for some students of mine (elementary). I want to show them crypto.

I'm at the step right before testing, but I get this error :

Any idea ?


#2

This is just a guess... Some of those tests are very memory intensive - and there's a reasonable chance that if you're booting from a USB key, the system probably doesn't have access to a swap partition.

What happens if you go on to start zcashd anyway?


#3

This :

fred@clone-black:~/zcash$ ./src/zcashd -daemon
bash: ./src/zcashd: No such file or directory
fred@clone-black:~/zcash$ ./src/zcash-cli getinfo
bash: ./src/zcash-cli: No such file or directory

I'm testing in a C2D with 2G ram ... it's running in HDD, not usb key


#4

Your OS should give you access to a task monitor that will show you live statistics such as memory usage - your system probably doesn't have enough memory.


#5

ok, thanks for the info, I was thinking that too. The src folder exist, but
the commands is not found, I guess the system is just not right. Any place
where I can download something ready to test? zcashd?


#6

Even if you got zcashd to run, you'd need an extraordinarily lean OS to be able to mine on a 2GB system.

However, you could try compiling on a system with more memory and then just copying the zcash folders to your current system. Be aware that there are permission issues in doing this. There's a chmod command that can help here but I don't know how to use it properly. I've gotten around that by making sure the account names on the source and destination systems are the same.


#7

Thanks for your help !

I guess I will have to change my strategy. At the school we have old servers not running (moved to cloud now). They are dual CPU (xeon) with around 16-24gb ram and about 80gb space). What would be the best virtual machine setup ? I was thinking 1 cpu, 4 core and 8gb ram per machine.

Thanks


#8

I don't have any experience with that but from my experience with my own computers I'd expect that, with 4 to 8 GB of swap space, your proposed virtual machines should be able to compile the source code and perform joinsplit transactions.
